krb5_c_verify_checksum - Verify a checksum (operates on keyblock).

krb5_error_code krb5_c_verify_checksum(krb5_context context, const krb5_keyblock * key, krb5_keyusage usage, const krb5_data * data, const krb5_checksum * cksum, krb5_boolean * valid)

[in] context - Library context

[in] key - Encryption key for a keyed checksum

[in] usage - key usage

[in] data - Data to be used to compute a new checksum using key to compare cksum against

[in] cksum - Checksum to be verified

[out] valid - Non-zero for success, zero for failure

  • 0 Success; otherwise - Kerberos error codes

This function verifies that cksum is a valid checksum for data . If the checksum type of cksum is a keyed checksum, key is used to verify the checksum. If the checksum type in cksum is 0 and key is not NULL, the mandatory checksum type for key will be used. The actual checksum key will be derived from key and usage if key derivation is specified for the checksum type.


This function is similar to krb5_k_verify_checksum(), but operates on keyblock key .
